Victorian Home Restoration Supplies? See all 9 replies
We're searching to replace some existing dowels, and posts, on the front-porch railings of our Victorian home.  Is there any type of "restoration" parts-supply store, relatively close by, which carries wooden dowels, posts, and perhaps other Victorian style ornaments? We haven't found the same dowels at Lowes or Home Depot. (Ours is the grey Victorian, with the horrid pink trim, across from the church office.
